Kristina Moyor - Fine Art
Kristina was born and raised in Calgary, AB but recently moved to Turner Valley, AB with her husband and puppy to be closer to nature and enjoy more space and a quieter lifestyle.
In a family full of creative people there was always opportunity and support when it came to the Arts. She is passionate about many forms of art including painting, drawing, photography, singing, and dancing. Most of her time growing up was spent creating art and dancing. Her school notes were laced with patterns and designs. Coming up with a polished and imaginative cover page seemed to take precedence over the project itself. She felt most at home in Art class, where she received honors and awards for top marks. While earning a few sales and art commissions in Junior High and High school, and just feeling the need to express herself visually, she made plans to incorporate her career with her passion. In 2010, she completed her Bachelor of Arts at the University of Lethbridge where she focused her studies on drawing and painting. She delights in sharing her passion with others through teaching, and has had extensive experience teaching art, dance, ESL and at church.
"Although the thrill of painting satisfies my soul, there is such a rich reward in building up others and seeing them soar. Just as I could never stop painting, I could never stop learning and teaching. It is life!"
She finds inspiration primarily in nature while traveling and exploring. The majesty of the mountains, the peaceful rolling hills supporting rivers and lakes, the intensity of crashing waves and the constantly changing Alberta skies all excite her senses. Everywhere she goes, her camera follows to document moments of visual interest to be used in her art as a reference to a drawing, painting or simply to add fuel to her creativity.
Her paintings glean towards a realistic aesthetic, with works from impressionist painters as her primary influence over the years. She sees the world in a similar way as the impressionists do, with emphasis on how to paint it and expressing light and colour. She enjoys the dramatic contrasting complementary colours and the antithesis of calm and serene with turbulent and overpowering. Thundering waves elegantly curling and smashing into the smoothing sands create a harmonious landscape and drive Kristina to participate in conversing with her canvas.
Her goal is to possess the power of influence over the viewer and bring more light and joy into all living spaces. With continual practice and the need to constantly cultivate her craft and expand her abilities, she opens her heart and mind to the world, hoping to captivate her audience with her positivity and love for all creations.
